(AP) - A judge will decide June 24 whether to accept a plea agreement
between prosecutors and a northwest Indiana woman in the hit-and-run death
of a 50-year-old man whose body was found along Interstate 94.
Patricia Callahan of Portage pleaded guilty Tuesday in Porter County Court
to leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death in return for
prosecutors dropping charges of reckless homicide and insurance fraud.
Larry Rogers says he thinks Callahan pleaded guilty to what she is guilty
of. He says Callahan thought she had hit a deer on a night in August 2013
when she had in fact hit Ricky Kimble of LaPorte, but she still should have
stopped and called police.
